As I was reading "The James Bond Songs", I kept wondering for whom did the authors write this. For die-hard James Bond film fans? No, it’s too stiff and technical for them. For musicians? Perhaps. For film music composers? Definitely. But even then this book is so specific to James Bond songs that they’ve narrowed the niche of readers to those who want to compose James Bond songs themselves.

I found the book tedious, redundant and not the least bit joyful to read as I was hoping. Since it was written by two music professors, I think it essentially belongs in the classroom. For the general public, not so much.

I received my copy in a Goodreads Giveaway and would have loved to have given it a higher rating. Sorry.
